Toogood Family at Windmill Hill, Bedminster.

Hi Guys.
My maternal family lived at 50 Windmill Hill. Bedminister.
My mother was Betty Toogood she was born in this house, i remember living here as a young boy (born 1942)until approx 1947.
She worked at Mardens near Temple Meads Station in the late 1930s
My Grand Parents were Joe and Elizabeth Toogood.
I think Joe worked on the docks/Bristol Corporation and in the 20-30s may have been a stoker on a steam ship, out of the City Docks to Canada.

I am looking for any information on my family, indeed photographs of this area at that time would be good.
I am willing to pay reasonable expenses associated with the above.
Regards Mr David Holbrook
